Part 2: Poster Session

 After the end of the second part, an exchange meeting was held by the poster session presenters. Divided into tables of four participants, they introduced themselves and their activities, and then gathered at a table on a theme of interest among the themes proposed by the participants to discuss.
At first, everyone was nervous about the unfamiliar situation, but once the meeting started, the tension gradually eased, and opinions were exchanged in a friendly atmosphere.
Participants commented, "It was good to be able to interact with other universities of various ages and receive opinions from new perspectives," and "It was good to hear the opinions of people of the same age group because I had little interaction with other organizations and did not know how they were working." We received comments such as, "I was able to exchange contact information with several people, and I think it was an opportunity to further expand the scope of our activities."
